Despite being well over 2,000 years old, the sword, known as the
Goujian, did not have a single trace of rust. The blade drew blood when
an archeologist tested his finger on its edge, seemingly unaffected by
the passage of time. Besides this strange quality, the craftsmanship

sports a 7.7 per 100K, Russia a 13.12, South Africa 16.25 and Kenya
would be the only one lower with a 2.76.
